This dataset contains the result of the GEDII cross-country survey carried out among EU based research teams during the year 2017. It contains research teams from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Overall, the Consortium recruited 159 research groups submitting a total of 1501 online questionnaires - out of which 1357 are complete.

The dataset is unique in that it combines individual level responses from research group members regarding team climate, communication patterns, or leadership style among others with bibliometric performance data for each particular group retrieved from Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics).

The data is distributed as R package "gediiccs", including extensive documentation.

NOTE: The open access version of  the "gediiccs" package contains the team level data only. This restriction is due to confidentiality concerns: given the large quantity of variables in relation to the relatively small research groups, it would be easy for group members to "reverse engineer" the identity of their own group as well as the responses from individual group members. Hence, only team level aggregated data has been released.
